A comprehensive water security framework can provide a clear, long-term vision for water management and governance. However, water is a complex resource with an intricate relationship to our lives and livelihoods. In this Special Session, we break down the concept of water security and engage participants in breakout discussion groups. After an opening panel discussion, participants will discuss focus questions on the concept of water security and its underlying nexuses. These discussions will be reported and published as part of the Center for Water Security and Cooperation's Water Security Challenge and offer a unique opportunity to influence the development of a water security framework.
